(On the website where I originally posted this as a thread, this particular one was posted on March 9th. Some of you might think, ‘Wow! he gets up early!’ Actually I am a night person, so if I am up at 6:30 in the morning, it is almost guaranteed that I stayed up all night. Though, it was hard to go to sleep with the beautiful winter scene going on outside…)

It is 6:30 in the morning. Denver is supposed to get 9 – 15 inches of snow today. My yard is already covered in white, and beautiful big flakes are falling. The problem is this storm was not supposed to start for several hours yet according to the forecast last night.

asa no kouhii
ohyuki ya


dripping sound
the morning coffee
Big snow storm!


On a cold winter morning, with heavy snow falling outside, is there anything warmer than a hot cup of freshly brewed coffee? …oh, actually there is:




soto o mite
futon ni modoshi
ohyuki ya


A look outside
returning to the futon
Big snowstorm!


In America, of course, we return to our beds, rather than a futon…
